Ballentine’s 2009 Old Vines Zinfandel comes from the eastern-most side of the winery’s estate Pocai Vineyard in Napa Valley. Deep purple in the color, the Ballentine 2009 Old Vines Zinfandel has classic flavors of black cherry, clove, and fresh rose petals with hints of blueberry compote and raspberry spiciness. The palate is silky in texture with wonderful jammy flavors and nuances of vanilla and cranberries with cocoa powder and dusty tannins lingering on the finish.
